Daily missive for Friday the 5th of March.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Friday the 5th of March.

There is a lightness
Of touch
A gentle feel
The tickle of a sea breeze
Stirring the air
Lifting molecules
From a body of water
Circulating dead skin
Carrying pollen
Distributing indiscriminately
Pollution and fairy dust
Mildew and rust
A dead wind
Playing with life.
An insubstantiality
As solid as an iron door
Fragile, as an idea
Restlessly tossed
A matter of pride
Taken
An acceptance
Of redundancy
Embraced.
Perfection
Is only fleeting
Nothing is abandoned
But there is brevity
In meeting
The truth
Of your being
Carelessly lost
Before
You ever had cause
To know what it was
To be human.
